Eagle Scout

This past Saturday we celebrated as our son, Kaleb, was awared his Eagle Scout badge. His is officaially an Eagle Scout now. It is quite a significant accomplishment and one that we are quite proud of. Kaleb started as a Tiger in Cub Scouts way back when he was in kindergarden. He's come a long way. Here are the requirements to become an Eagle Scout.

I've learned through watching both of my sons earn the rank of Eagle Scout that this award is a lot like life. There are rewards when you stick to something for the long haul, if you know what I mean. There were sacrifices that had to be made. There were times that they had to do what they were "required" to do rather than what they "wanted" to do. One of the main things was that each boy had to be determined to keep their eye on the goal and pursure it. There are always many things in life that can distract you away from your goal.

Way to go, Big K!
